Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Treharris

At what point can the exchange of contracts occur in residential conveyancing in Treharris and do I need to be at the conveyancers office?

Where you are local to one of the conveyancing solicitors in Treharris you are welcome to come in to sign contracts. That being said, the firms we recommend provide a national conveyancing service and give just as detailed and professional a job for you when communicating with you digitally. The executing of the property agreement is not the point of no return. A signed contract is just a prerequisite for the firm to address the formalities when the time is right, which is ordinarily shortly after signing. The procedure is is usually a five minute process, although where an extended "chain" is in play, since the process requires the relevant party's solicitor (not necessarily a conveyancing solicitor in Treharris)to be in the office at the appropriate time.

I am selling my home in Treharris. Will the lawyer have to be on the Bank of Ireland conveyancing panel in order to deal with the discharge of my mortgage?

Ordinarily, even if your lawyer is not on the Bank of Ireland conveyancing panel they can still act for you on your sale. It might be that the lender will not release the original deeds (if applicable and increasingly irrelevant) until after the mortgage is paid off. You should speak to your lawyer directly before you start the process though to ensure that there is no problem as lenders are changing their conditions fairly frequently in recent years.

We are planning to move house in July. Should my conveyancing solicitor communicate with the removal company on the day of completion. Incidentally, can you put forward a removal company in Treharris. Conveyancing solicitor was found before I stumbled across your website.

On the day of completion you will need to pick up the keys from the property agent however this should only be done after the vendors solicitors confirm to the agent that they acknowledge receipt of the completion payment and the keys can be handed over. After that you can advise the removal company that you are ready to move in. We do not suggest a specific removal company but can help you find a conveyancing in Treharris or a solicitor with expertise in conveyancing in Treharris.

We were going to get a DIP from Barclays this week so we can work out what to offer on a property we like as otherwise we are dependent on web based calculators (which aren't taking into account credit checks etc). Do Barclays recommend any Treharris solicitors on the Barclays conveyancing panel, or is it better to find our own lawyer?

You will need to appoint Treharris solicitors independently although you'll need to choose one on the Barclays conveyancing panel. The solicitor represents both you and Barclays through the process.

I have paid off my mortgage with Clydesdale. I assume I don't need a Treharris conveyancer on the Clydesdale panel to remove the mortgage at the Land Registry. Am I right?

If you have finished paying off your Clydesdale mortgage, they may send you evidence showing that you have paid it off. Alternatively they may notify the Land Registry directly. The Land Registry need to see this evidence before they will remove the Clydesdale mortgage from the register. Clydesdale, and any evidence they send you, will determine the action you need to take. In cases where no conveyancer is acting for you and you have paid off your mortgage:

  1. but are not moving to another property
  2. where Clydesdale has sent the Land Registry the discharge electronically, and
  3. Clydesdale has instructed the Land Registry to do so
The Land Registry will send you a letter confirming that your Clydesdale mortgage has been paid off.

Me and my brother own a renovated Victorian house in Treharris. Conveyancing lawyer represented me and Clydesdale. I happened to do a free search for it on the Land Registry database and there are a couple of entries: the first freehold, the second leasehold under the matching address. Is it worth asking Clydesdale to clarify?

You should read the Freehold register you have again and check the Charges Register for mention of a lease. The best way to be sure that you are also the registered proprietor of the leasehold and freehold title as well is to check (£3). It is not completely unheard of in Treharris and other locations in the country and poses no real issues for owners other than when they buy they have to account for both freehold and leasehold interests when dealing with purchasers. You can also question the situation with the conveyancing practitioner who conducted the work.

I've recently bought a leasehold flat in Treharris. Do I have any liability for service charges relating to a period prior to completion of my purchase?

Where the service charge has already been demanded from the previous owner and they have not paid you would not usually be personally liable for the arrears. However, your landlord may still be able to take action to forfeit the lease. A critical element of leasehold conveyancing for your conveyancer to be sure to have an up to date clear service charge receipt before completion of your purchase. If you have a mortgage this is likely to be a requirement of your lender.

If you purchase part way through an accounting year you may be liable for charges not yet demanded even if they relate to a period prior to your purchase. In such circumstances your conveyancer would normally arrange for the seller to set aside some money to cover their part of the period (usually called a service charge retention).

Treharris Leasehold Conveyancing - Examples of Questions you should consider before Purchasing

    What prohibitions exist in the Treharris Lease? How much is the ground rent and service charge? The majority of Treharris leasehold flats will have a service charge for the upkeep of the building set on behalf of the landlord. If you buy the property you will have to meet this liability, usually in instalments accross the year. This could be anything from a few hundred pounds to thousands of pounds for blocks with lifts and large communal grounds. In all probability there will be a ground rent to be met annual, this is usually not a large figure, say about £25-£75 but you should to enquire as on occasion it can be many hundreds of pounds.

Am in the process of purchasing my 1st home in Treharris. Conveyancing lawyer already selected. The mortgage adviser pointed out that a survey is not appropriate as the house was only built in 2002.

You would be best advised to have a Home Buyer's Report. Given the residence was constructed more than a decade ago the property will not benefit from a warranty, so you would be well advised not to take a risk. Where a property of this age shows no signs of problems a Home Buyer's report could suffice. The report should highlight any obvious problems and suggest additional investigation where relevant. If there are any indications of material issues seek a comprehensive structural survey.
